Stéphane Belmondo (trumpet), Dmitry Baevsky (alto sax), Jeremy Brown (double bass), Rob Barron (piano), Jason Brown (drums).
UK premiere of well-established French based artists presenting music from their latest album "Kid's time". With a sound, a sense of rhythm and a harmonic conception reminiscent of Sonny Rollins, Jackie McLean, Steve Grossman or Dexter Gordon, this stands out today as one of the projects which counts on the international jazz scene. The repertoire combines original compositions, standards and calypsos.
Stéphane Belmondo is considered one of the best trumpeters of his generation and has played with some big names in jazz and pop (Chet Baker, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Yusef Lateef, Milton Nascimento, etc.). He has won all the significant awards (3 Victoires de la Musique , Prix Django Reinhardt de l'Académie Du Jazz...) and has recorded over 200 albums...
Alto saxophonist Dmitry has moved to Paris in 2016 after living in New York for more then a decade where he was originally invited to study at New School University on a full scholarship. His first album as a leader “Introducing Dmitry Baevsky” came out in 2005 and features such masters as Cedar Walton and Jimmy Cobb. Since then, Baevsky has performed and/or recorded with musicians such as Benny Green, Peter Washington, Willie Jones III, David Hazeltine, "Killer" Ray Appleton, Peter Bernstein, Roger Kellaway, Dennis Irwin, Jeremy Pelt, Steve Williams, Joe Magnarelli, Ryan Kisor...Dimitry is Selmer indorsed artists.
